Eurogamer: "Resident Evil 2! Resident Evil 2 is my favourite of all the Resident Evil games, refining and intensifying the suspense and isolation of the first and embedding it in an equally coherent and surprising new setting. Good news for me then, because Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles' chief producer Masachika Kawata, fresh from his work on Resident Evil 5 with Jun Takeuchi, describes the transition from last year's surprisingly good Umbrella Chronicles in similar terms.
"One of the biggest things is we wanted to put it in Umbrella Chronicles," he tells Eurogamer. "We just didn't have enough time to - so it felt like this was us finishing the job we started out to do initially. The second thing of course is yes, we know this is a very popular game within the series itself, and to be able to work with Cavia to create this, to base The Darkside Chronicles on this story, we knew was going to be a lot of fun."
